    Nope, anarchists claim you can do whatever you want.

    Then what type of government DO you support then since what we have is a representative democracy that in fact holds power to the states.

    Anarchists think the state shouldn't exist, which is what you implied.

    The United States is a constitutional republic. It has never been a democracy.

    "Representative democracy" and "Republic" mean the same thing.

    No, they are very different. The term republic is not going to be pushed aside because recently people like the idea of calling everything but North Korea a democracy. Democracy is very specific, and the US is not one.

    A representative democracy is where people vote for representatives...

    Like I said, calling everything a democracy now will not be used to push aside the word republic. A democracy is simply majority force rule, and base rules exclude a democracy from existing.

    Why do you think anyone cares about "pushing aside" the word republic and what relevance is this to the conversation?

    Because they continue to claim the US was a democracy ever.
